In its fourth version, the Philips "Lighten up your ideas" competition proposed the lightning of the nations most important institutional building, La Moneda Palace. The winning project presented here is characterized by solving the complex problem of giving a new image to the governments house through a simple decision. A light belt all around the building and the stresses on the vertical rhythm generated by the pilasters give to La Moneda a renewed nocturnal image, generating a new relation between citizens and the building.
